The Dark

by Annette Wynne

The dark's a curtain black and tall
That covers up the trees and all;
The dark's a curtain black and wide
That covers up the world outside;
But in the room the lamp's good light
Keeps the darkness out of sight,
Until we eat our milk and bread,
And play a bit and go to bed;
And then the curtain black and tall
Covers up the room and all;
And then the curtain black and wide
Covers up the world inside.
